What Accounts For The Variation Of Immigration Policies In Western Democracies Since 9/11?, Hayley Mcelroy

Williams Honors College, Honors Research Projects

From the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks to now, there has been a dramatic change of immigration policies among Western Democracies. This comparative paper will measure the change of refugee acceptance rates and will discover the reasons for these variations. Immigration has become a major issue in the United States as well as in other Western democracies. Even though most of these democracies are located in similar geographic areas and have similar cultures, they all have different approaches when it comes to accepting immigrants and refugees. Furthermore, this paper will analyze the policies of the United States, the ...


Climate Change Action And Adaptation In Tokyo, Yuichiro Tsuji Prof. 2020 Meiji University Law School 81818app手机版下载

Climate Change Action And Adaptation In Tokyo, Yuichiro Tsuji Prof.

Washington Journal of Environmental Law & Policy

This paper reviews an adaptation plan for the Tokyo Metropolitan Area. The Japanese Government decided to remain in the Paris Agreement and began trying to reduce CO2 with technology after the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011. Nuclear power plants were closed, and some are still under safety review. Newly built thermal power plants will increase CO2 emissions, and the battle among the ministries hinders effective adaptation planning.

In 2012, the central government announced three basic approaches: risk management, comprehensive and general planning, and cooperating with local governments. However, the central government’s tactics still fall behind other countries’, and ...

Regulating Micromobility: Examining Transportation Equity And Access, Karen Johnston, Deirdre A. Oakley, Audra Durham, Claire Bass, Stacie Kershner

Journal of Comparative Urban Law and Policy

This paper evaluates the various ways cities have or are attempting to address e-scooter usage equity concerns, with a focus on Atlanta, Georgia as compared to Austin, Texas; Charlotte, North Carolina; Los Angeles, California; and Portland, Oregon. The cities were evaluated by the laws in effect at the time of coding, which occurred during the project period of October through December 2019. To explore how existing laws and regulations affect access to e-scooters, this research was guided by the following overarching questions: How equitable is access to e-scooters? How can equitable access to e-scooters be improved? How can a data-driven ...


Inequities Of Transit Access: The Case Of Atlanta, Ga, Christopher K.

Inequities Of Transit Access: The Case Of Atlanta, Ga, Christopher K. Wyczalkowski, Timothy Welch, Obed Pasha

Journal of Comparative Urban Law and Policy

81818app手机版下载Public transportation systems are essential components of urban infrastructure, providing connectivity that contributes to the quality of life for urban dwellers. Particularly important for low-income populations, public transportation systems enhance access to jobs, markets, services, education, healthcare, recreation, and social networks. While low-income populations and minorities make up a disproportionately high share of transit ridership, theories such as spatial mismatch, social construction framework, and Critical Race Theory maintain that public transportation systems may not provide equitable connectivity to all riders. We utilize GIS and regression models to examine the relationship between transit connectivity and poverty, asking whether connectivity is evenly ...

Sense Of Place: The Intersection Between Built Heritage And Intangible Cultural Heritage In Singapore, Jack Lee 2020 Expert Member, International Scientific Committee on Legal, Administrative and Financial Issues (ICLAFI), International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) and President, Singapore Heritage Society 81818app手机版下载

Sense Of Place: The Intersection Between Built Heritage And Intangible Cultural Heritage In Singapore, Jack Lee

Journal of Comparative Urban Law and Policy

Built heritage in Singapore is safeguarded through two legal regimes, one relating to national monuments declared under the Preservation of Monuments Act (Chapter 239, 2011 Revised Edition), and the other relating to conservation areas declared under the Planning Act (Cap 232, 1998 Rev Ed). In contrast, no particular legal protection exists for intangible cultural heritage. Considering examples such as tomb inscriptions and rituals for honouring the deceased at Bukit Brown Cemetery, this article explores how built heritage can be secured and enriched by giving greater recognition and protection in international and domestic law to the intangible cultural heritage associated with ...

The Business Of Heritage In Singapore: Money, Politics & Identity, Kevin Tan

Journal of Comparative Urban Law and Policy

81818app手机版下载Singapore is one of the most rational and unsentimental places on earth. Its government prides itself on its pragmatic approach to policy-making, and is not afraid to slaughter sacred cows if they have to. This is perhaps most dramatically demonstrated by the radical modernization of Singapore’s built environment through its various Master Plans and public housing programmes. This massive physical transformation is perhaps modern Singapore’s most visible sign of progress. In such a milieu, ‘heritage’ is viewed more as a commodity to be bargained over than a common good in itself. The discussion over whether a building should ...

The Making Of Urban Applied Statistics With Four Of Juergensmeyer's Theoretical Insights, Wellington Migliari 2020 University of Barcelona

The Making Of Urban Applied Statistics With Four Of Juergensmeyer's Theoretical Insights, Wellington Migliari

Journal of Comparative Urban Law and Policy

The present article delves deeper into four academic contributions written by the emeritus professor Julian Conrad Juergensmeyer, Ben F. Johnson Jr. Chair in Law and Director, Center for the Comparative Study of Metropolitan Growth. Co-authoring relevant publications on spatial issues from different perspectives, we identify four valuable insights accumulated along four decades dedicated to industrial co-operation, planning costs, land use and infrastructure development. All of them combined can make what we denominate an urban developmental mind. It is a strategic sequence of ideas involving urban planning, economics and law as a complex yet inevitable amalgamation of knowledge for human development ...


Analysis Of The Complex Relations Between Poverty And The Urban Environment In Brazil, Vladimir Freitas 2020 Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná, Brazil 81818app手机版下载

Analysis Of The Complex Relations Between Poverty And The Urban Environment In Brazil, Vladimir Freitas

Journal of Comparative Urban Law and Policy

Brazil has strong legal support for the protection of environmental areas. In addition to the fact that rural properties are required to leave a part, called the “legal reserve” (20% in the south of the country) untouched, there is also strong protection within urban areas. It turns out that population growth and ruralurban migration have caused a rise in new environmental issues, many of them affecting vulnerable populations. The purpose of this study is to identify the complexity of the invasions of these areas by homeless people and the difficulties of providing a legal solution to these cases. There is ...
